I felt that she [Dr. Balbieri] was easy to talk to and tried to be realistic about chances of success. When I did not respond to injectables, she urged me to cancel the cycle, which was upsetting, but after speaking with people who did do cycles with 3-5 follicles, I am very pleased she convinced me to stop given the expense and anticipated poor outcome.... I started on an IVF protocol. I had never done IVF before, had responded well to clomid with 2-3 follicles each time. My protocol was OCP for 10 days, then a few day break, started dexamethasone, followed by 2 menopur in AM and follistim 300 in pm. AFC was 16.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
I felt that she was easy to talk to and tried to be realistic about chances of success. When I did not respond to injectables, she urged me to cancel the cycle, which was upsetting, but after speaking with people who did do cycles with 3-5 follicles, I am very pleased she convinced me to stop given the expense and anticipated poor outcome.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Have a realistic understanding of the chance of success.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Clinic staff is easy to talk to, able to get appointments easily, listened to my previous experience.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
I started on an IVF protocol. I had never done IVF before, had responded well to clomid with 2-3 follicles each time. My protocol was OCP for 10 days, then a few day break, started dexamethasone, followed by 2 menopur in AM and follistim 300 in pm. AFC was 16. I was monitored on day 3,5, and 7. By day 7, I had only 3 follicles responding well so was advised to stop stims and cancel the cycle. It was converted to IUI with vaginal progesterone, which unfortunately failed. Per follow up discussion, felt that OCP was oversuppressing so advice was to start stims again as a natural cycle with no OCP.
Describe your experience with your nurse at ORM Fertility.
I ended up meeting with a few different coordinators even though I had one assigned to me. They were all helpful and able to answer questions about my protocol. When needed, they would talk to Dr. Barbieri and get back to me later in the day.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
This clinic is in a good location that is easy to get to, it has parking right outside, and all of my appointments except one have started on time, which is important when fitting visits in alongside a full time job. They also have monitoring appointments available starting at 7AM.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
They provide an out of pocket estimate. Pre-cycle testing 2-8k. Cost of one cycle is $20,200 plus medications. While my insurance does not cover IVF, they did cover all the IVF monitoring appointments with this clinic, so the cost of my canceled cycle was quite low.
Describe Elizabeth Barbieri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at ORM Fertility.
She strongly advised transferring a single PGS tested embryo per transfer. Given 3 miscarriages she wants me to do PGS testing.

She [Elizabeth Barbieri] is great, but she rushes her answers and her visit with you with great enthusiasm.... On our last IUI, she noticed that my husbands sperm was low (as it was on the cusp the prior times) so instead of moving forward with another IUI, they referred us to increase his numbers before we continue with another IUI. The only thing is that she sometimes seems to be in a hurry but she will answer every question posed.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. Barbieri is an extremely knowledgeable Reproductive Endocronolgist and we are so glad to make the 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive to Oregon Reproductive Medicine. On our last IUI, she noticed that my husbands sperm was low (as it was on the cusp the prior times) so instead of moving forward with another IUI, they referred us to increase his numbers before we continue with another IUI. The only thing is that she sometimes seems to be in a hurry but she will answer every question posed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
She will seem as though she is in a hurry, but she’s willing to explain and expand on anything that you need.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
She is great, but she rushes her answers and her visit with you with great enthusiasm.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
I have PCOS and Hashimoto’s. By simultaneously quitting dairy I seemed to reduce cysts on my ovaries. She had me take letrozole (day 3-7), followed by a mid-cycle ultrasound with an HCG shot to force release of egg.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are amazing. Due to the timing of my cycles, another team has completed them and they were all compassionate, comforting, and knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
I can not think of any weakness. They are extremely clean, organized and efficient. Their entire clinic is set up to allow for privacy and they are extremely organized not only in physical presentation but the steps you take to complete your visits is so well laid out (they have multiple levels to their building).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
I had very partial coverages for some labs performed and ultrasounds. These costs are approximate as I currently have the bills with our tax preparer: IUI procedure alone was $295 - Ultrasound (I had to have 2 each cycle) $130 each - HCG shot $170 - sperm analysis/washing/prep - $160-$200- labs = $400+ - letrozole $15 - HCG = $500 - Fibroid removal $3,000

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. Barbieri is a good blend of a direct communicator and a compassionate doctor. She clearly communicates the risks and benefits of her treatment plan and will take the time to thoroughly answer questions. Dr. Barbieri speaks pretty quickly, so she may come off as cold or rushed to some, at least at first. However, she seems genuinely excited for us when there is good news and will take the time to comfort us when there is bad news. When I have approached her with questions about other potential treatment plans or possible testing, she has been open minded. When she disagrees, she has provided clear, research-backed explanations on why and generally proposes an alternative.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. Barbieri may come off as distant or cold at first, but she has been one of the most compassionate doctors I have seen. Also, don't be afraid to ask all of your questions or express concerns.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. Barbieri is able to speak directly about treatment and possible outcomes, but will also stop to ask how you are feeling. She remembers details about our lives outside of the "fertility world" and takes the time to thoroughly consider my questions before answering.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
The clinic is well organized. The nursing staff was always friendly and timely with answering questions or calling in prescriptions. There is generally early morning availability for blood draw appointments, which makes it convenient. There were a couple of minor communication misses with my coordinator, but nothing that a quick phone call or email didn't fix--if you have questions, just reach out and ask. Test results were delivered timely. The doctors at the clinic seem tp be up to date on research. The other doctors that I have seen (for example, for egg retrieval) have been equally as wonderful as my primary doctor.

She [Dr. Barbieri] was very caring and kind during our interactions. She also didn’t treat me like I was dumb. However, she didn’t make clear some treatment expectations and I did have multiple cycles where I didnt see her at all and instead saw one of 2 nurse practitioners.... She never suggested supplements or any course of improving my body other than trying to lose weight and keeping my PCOS caused diabetes under control.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. barbieri is very caring, it she left me anxious throughout. I hardly saw her and she left me thinking I would be “stuck” with IVF after 6 tries, which for my family meant we were done trying because we can not afford IVF. She never suggested supplements or any course of improving my body other than trying to lose weight and keeping my PCOS caused diabetes under control. I found out after 6 tries that she would do 6 more but that I should have also been focusing on my vitamin D levels.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Feel comfort in plans with printed timelines and instructions, but be prepared for a lack of customization.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
Letrozole, trigger shot, ultrasound to check lining and follicle size, IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at ORM Fertility.
They only relayed the information they seemed to have printed off. They often forgot what IUI cycle number it was, which was stressful.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
They are expensive, clean, and they tend to ask you the same questions repeatedly, which is anxiety provoking. They push taking out loans for IVF. Their parking lot is tiny and parking can be difficult. They are very slow about billing and you may not get the correct bill for 3-4 months as they bill you the full amount and slowly alter it based on insurance response. The lab work is paid up front with reimbursement based on later insurance response. This is very irritating and hard to plan for costs.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
Very expensive before insurance. $250 for an ultrasound, $80 for blood pregnancy test $250 for preparing sperm. They seemed to have a charge for every step of handling.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
I was on a "good responder" protocol for my egg retrievals. I used ganarellex, menopur and follistim. The first round of ivf, I had 26 eggs, 22 of them were mature. We did ICSI with my husband's sperm and had 6 blasts on day 5. We did PGS testing and had 4 "normal".
Describe your experience with your nurse at ORM Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Christina Buck)
The coordinator that works with all independently matched intended parents and gestational carriers at ORM seems to be overwhelmed at times. I often wondered if she needed assistance from an additional staff member. Our coordinator did not move as quickly as we had hoped at times, but always eventually got things done, sometimes it took pestering. I do have very high expectations for this person though, given all the money we invested in the clinic.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
ORM is a beautiful and highly rated clinic. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Given that my husband and I don't suffer from traditional infertility, I cannot speak to the clinics ability to diagnose and address complicated fertility situations. I have a medical condition that make it very dangerous to my health to carry a baby, so we are forced to use a gestational carrier. Being that I was relatively young at time of egg retrieval (33), everything for us went pretty smoothly and we had the results that we hoped for. ORM is one of the top clinics in the country for surrogacy and we are blessed they are in our backyard. I'd use them again and recommend them to anyone needing ivf.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
About $30,000 for two egg retrievals and one transfer to gestational carrier
Describe Elizabeth Barbieri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at ORM Fertility.
Dr. Barbieri explained the risks of a double embryo transfer and advocated for the safest approach given our situation of not having a large number of banked embryos, so we will transfer one at a time. It is ORMs practice to leave it up to the intended parents if they would like to transfer one or two embryos.

Dr Barbieri is pretty blunt and honest, which I appreciate. After my failed cycle, she was compassionate, but also not very encouraging. She seemed to want me to go somewhere else (to another clinic)... Strengths: candid, clear, to the point, smart Weaknesses: always seemed in a hurry. After my failed cycle, she suggested I use a surrogate, which seemed way too early given that I have decent AMH, make embryos and am otherwise healthy. It upset me that she brought up that possibility so soon.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
Antagonist protocol. Freeze all. Then transfer one embryo. I made 24 eggs. 6, 5 day embryos. Only 1 was genetically normal. One was mosaic. They transferred that one healthy one and I had a chemical pregnancy. They don't transfer mosaics.
Describe your experience with your nurse at ORM Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Katie McLindsay)
I did not like Katie at all. She was cold and distant. When she told me that I had had a chemical pregnancy, she left a cold, compassion-less vm, at the end, saying "let me know if you have any questions or concerns..." Of COURSE I had concerns..It seemed like a stock vm to me. If I ever go back to ORM, I would request a different nurse.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
The clinic is excellent--friendly, warm, organized, etc. They have great success rates, even though I wasn't successful there. I can't think of any weaknesses. I think it's a great clinic. The embryologists are lovely, my clinical coordinator, Jenni, was wonderful. Just didn't like my nurse at all

She’s kind and straight forward once we had “done all we could do” she explained that hard topic to us as well. She never made me feel inadequate ORM dismissed my tears- very empathic though providing a plan, which helped us feel that the time and energy at each appointment was maximized. Because of Dr. Barbieri we have our little one and we are eternally grateful to her and ORM.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Know she is 100% invested in helping you grow your family while keeping you safe. Be prepared for honest direct feedback.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
Too many procedures and protocols to list. 7 years is a long length of time. To list a few: hysteroscopy, IUI, IVF, endometrial scratching, endometrial biopsy, egg retrieval, ICSI
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
The clinic is beautiful. The staff incredibly knowledgeable, organized and friendly. You are in great hands with your family building journey here, in my opinion they are the best. Remember everyone at the clinic is at a different phase of their journey, even when you feel like the only one. It helped to put it into perspective while sitting in the lobby awaiting the appt. As a new patient, parking can be challenging so allow for time to find a space.
Describe Elizabeth Barbieri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at ORM Fertility.
She provided the details of each respectively and we were able to make a mutual decision of transferring a set (2) resulting in our 1 child.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
I'm currently in my TWW for my first IUI at ORM. DR Barbieri discussed that depending on my bodies response to medications we may do 2-3 IUIs. She explained she would tell me after the second one what her plan would be for us and then we would move on to IVF if we haven't gotten a BFP. She put me on 100 mg of Clomid for 5 days this cycle (due to my low follicle count in Arizona earlier this year) she explained that we could get too many mature follicles and have to cancel. She was very straight forward with this information. We ended up with one perfect, one almost big enough and two that might catch up so she explained again that we could trigger then or wait a few days and hope the other catch up and have a better chance. Again straight forward and made sure I was on the same page as her and wanted the same things. We waited a few more days and triggered with an Ovidrel injection. I had my IUI with a nurse yesterday and now we wait!!

The nurses are all great. While I don't have one specific nurse assigned to me. Everyone I've had contact with has been thorough, very good at explaining, compassionate, organized and gentle (as far as the nurse who performed the IUI).
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
This office is very clean, organized, friendly and very helpful! I would say that the only weaknesses are that they are somewhat hard to get ahold of on the telephone BUT they always call back very promptly! You also have to pay attention closely if you e had any testing done at another office. They are very used to people starting their journey with them. I had all of my testing done in another state and even though it was all transferred prior to my first appointment I got one phone call from an outside radiology office stating that Dr B had sent a referral for me to schedule an HSG with them. I called and spoke to a nurse and she apologized and stated I didn't need another one. Had I just trusted that the radiologist office was right I would've paid for another $500 test that was unnecessary. I do believe it was an honest mistake on their part but it is a gentle reminder to be aware of everything you've had done already and always ask questions!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
My IUI totaled from cycle day 1-insemination approx $1,200 (including meds). You pay for each appointment separately at time of service.

I never feel rushed when I have an appointment with Dr. Barbieri and she always answers any questions we have...We started with IUIs. Our diagnosis is "unexplained". We got pregnant after our 3rd IUI but it ended up being ectopic. We had to wait several months after that for the medication to get out of my system/run its course and then we started IUIs again. She even let us do one additional IUI because we asked for it. Unfortunately, it did not work out for us. We have now moved onto IVF.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
My husband I are very happy with Dr. Barbieri. She is straight to the point but also very encouraging and hopeful. She takes the times to listen to our concerns/questions. We never feel rushed when we see her.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is great! Very responsive, very nice. They have always returned calls in a timely matter (even on weekends).
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
ORM is great. From the front desk staff to the physicians. They seem to be very organized and are always able to help. What I liked them about them is that I did not have to wait a long time for my initial appt. I originally called a local hospital system that has a infertility clinic. They told me they could not schedule me until half way through the month when the next months schedule came out. They said they would call me. In the mean time, I called ORM and was able to get in within 1-2 weeks. That other clinic NEVER called me back to schedule.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
We have spent about $6500 for 8 IUIs (includes, initial consult,testing,meds and procedure). We have spent about $22000 for IVF/ICSI (includes appts/consults, testing and meds). Our insurance only covers items that diagnosis infertility (basically just the testing), does not any cover treatment.

Strengths: - Competent - Really cares about her patients - Dedicated - Willing to work with patients to determine the next course of action / protocols when setbacks / disappointments occurred - Succinct communication Weakness: - Does not give a very warm bedside manner that some people require - Very busy
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Although she might not give you a warm, fuzzy feeling, she really cares about her patients, is competent, and is willing to work with them, unlike other clinics. Do spend the time to think about the questions to ask, do the right research, and work with her as a team.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Dr. Barbieri's communication style is succinct, to-the-point, and no sugar coating. This might induce the patients to feel that she is not warm or catered to their feelings and needs. However, she is extremely dedicated to her patients (she talked with me about my treatment plan during her maternity leave), cares about their well-being (she told me to slow down from my hectic life), and spends the time to think about the best course of action for her patients.

Dr Barbieri tells it like it is and it took me a few appointments to get used to her style. But, she's smart and good at her job which I value more in a doctor. She fully knew my case and predicted outcomes to treatment - I wouldn't go anywhere else
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Give it time, ask questions, and listen to her advice.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
When I first met Dr Barbieri, it was overwhelming and I didn't feel 100% connected. It's so emotional as a patient to hear you will unlikely get pregnant on your own, but the doctors see this everyday! Over time and as we moved forward with fertility treatments and we spent more time together, I felt less like another case and more like a friend she was helping. I ask a LOT of questions and have a lot of feelings - she was patient and caring with me.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
We did 5 rounds of IUI. #1 was successful (clomid) and ended in a miscarriage at 8 weeks. #2-5 were unsuccessful. We tried femera instead of clomid for one cycle to reduce side effects, but I produced less follicles. For IVF I was on an antagonist (good responder) protocol. It produced 21 eggs, 19 fertilized with ICSI, and 12 made it to day 5/6. We put two in immediately that didn't stick. Tested 10 with CCS and 7 were normals. Did a Natural FET with 2 and became pregnant with twins. At the 6.5 week ultrasound Baby A was healthy, but B had a weak heartbeat. B stopped growing by the next week. Baby A is a year old and 100% healthy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at ORM Fertility.
I love the nursing staff and especially the phlebotomist, Sarah. I HATE getting my blood drawn, but she's amazing! Always made me laugh and it rarely hurt or left bruises.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
It's a business and it feels like one. But, you can always call and get your questions answered, the wait times are minimal, and the office is nice.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
I believe Dr. Barbieri's strengths included being straight forward and compassionate. Her weaknesses seemed to be dismissiveness of worries regarding abnormal labs or bringing up studies showing something different than the recommendations.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
It would make a big difference if it seemed like the goal was to find the cause of infertility rather than just starting treatment regardless of the cause.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
IVF was discussed in our first appointment, despite no indication of anything wrong. Scheduling was a nightmare, they often wouldn't offer times/days until the last minute, and I never had a choice about when I could come in. I guess they assume no one has a job? I typically had a 50/50 chance if the nursing staff would call back the day I called, which exponentially increases stress since they don't want you to call until day 1 of your cycle to discuss scheduling. I often had to call them myself on issues after waiting days past the time they said they would call me.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
We were recommended to immediately start clomid + HSG + injection trigger + IUI. The rationale provided was it was because we were "unexplained" and I had trouble finding peak days on ovulation tests.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
When I would go into the offices they were friendly, good at drawing blood and providing comfort. I often felt dismissed on the phone. I had a very bad experience after being told some labs were abnormal that "they weren't abnormal enough to change anything" despite me finding multiple sources of literature saying otherwise. I was even inaccurately told that maybe the labs were abnormal because I wasn't fasting. Which one, they never told me to fast and two, the lab confirmed with me fasting wouldn't affect the results. It completely lost my trust.
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
The clinic itself seems well organized including check in and check out processes. Initial confusion about parking was handled very well. My first appointment there I was disappointed to have the front desk person assume "You must be here as an egg donor." I guess it's because they assumed I was so young I wasn't infertile, causing me embarrassment to have to tell them this. There were also screaming toddlers in the lobby, seemed in poor taste.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
An IUI cycle was quoted around 2k for each one. And IVF in the range of 20K

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
Ask all the questions you can think of. Knowledge helps.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility?
She was very kind and gentle and when I was pregnant the baby was measuring small and she knew there was a possibility of miscarriage and I appreciated that she gently told me so that I wasn’t completely surprised when it happened.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Barbieri used in your cycles at ORM Fertility and their degree of success.
We did an estrogen primed protocol, I have low ovarian reserve, and only one full ovary so it was to make sure my eggs could grow, as well as due to my age. We would have tested embryos but we never had more then 2 so we just transferred them to save the cost of testing. But she was very aware of and sensitive to all emotions during the process.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were warm and helpful
Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
They are on the expensive side but have good success rates. I felt that they went above and beyond and are worth the cost. Parking can be difficult. They whole staff was wonderful to work with. Occasionally I wished they would call with test results more quickly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Barbieri at ORM Fertility.
My first cycle including testing was about $18,000. The next was cheaper because we didn’t have to redo testing. So more like $12000

She is a very thorough doctor. I trusted her and her knowledge from the very beginning. I never once second guessed her opinion or plan of action.

Didn't feel like our care was individualized [with Dr. Barbieri] One transfer should probably not have moved forward...The facetime with the Doctor and specialists always felt a bit rushed. Diagnostically, I felt like our case wasn't handled on its own terms but rather as something to be run through an algorithm to produce the next course of action...was not open to receiving or entertaining new information to inform her practice even though my partner was reading current medical literature. Not a great listener, sort of waits to talk.

Describe your experience with ORM Fertility.
Aesthetics of everything - the care environment - were the best part. Our 2 retrievals there - in terms of comfort - were excellent. This clinic is a machine. A nice machine, but a machine. You must ask all of your questions and self-advocate.

She [Dr Elizabeth Barbieri] used wonderful and humorous analogies to help explain. For example I am a teacher and she would create classroom examples to help me understand...She is clearly knowledgable and well educated. She shares expectations clearly and listens well to what our expectations are. She has a great sense of humor and speaks with confidence. I always felt good in her hands.

She [Dr. Elizabeth Barbieri] was very honest and committed to our success...She was not warm and fuzzy or overly enthusiastic, but she was very committed and we ended up with a beautiful baby girl. I am very grateful to her and would definitely recommend her to others experiencing age related or other forms of infertility... I was not producing the triple stripe required for successful implantation so Dr. Barbieri consulted with others in her practice and we ultimately added Viagra to my treatment (taken vaginally) and it worked the first time. it was kind of gross and frustrating but it worked.
